With her distinctive voice and intimate knowledge of the era, Beverley sets the tone for this strong, moving romance centering on a woman caught in the hierarchical society and a man who cannot resist his destiny.

All About Romance

Above average

The problem isn’t just the lack of passion; it’s the lack of warm romantic love. Both the romance and the novel’s incidental plot lines are rather dull. An Unlikely Countess is well-written but not engaging.

An Unlikely Countess by Jo Beverly is a fantastically entertaining historical romance. I fell in love with both Catesby and Prudence, two very strong leading characters.
